BAKER, La. (AP) - Baker School District Superintendent Ulysses Joseph says officials still do not know whether Bakerfield Elementary will be run by the Baker board in the 2015-16 school year.

The Advocate reports (http://bit.ly/1GRF0j0 ) Bakerfield has received a grade of F from the state Department of Education for the past four years, making it eligible for takeover by the Recovery School District.

Joseph says the Baker School District has submitted a proposal to the state for keeping control of the school, but has not heard back yet.

He declined to give any details about what is in the proposal on Tuesday, but said it does not involve making Bakerfield into a magnet school.
